Sen. Ted Cruz: Democrats' "extreme policies" create a "culture of death"

Jun 28, 2013 Full story: CBS News 112

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, slammed the filibuster in the Texas state Senate that blocked extensive abortion restrictions, negatively comparing its use with that of Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul's marathon filibuster on the floor of the U.S. Senate earlier this year.

When Roe v Wade first happened even the GOP and religious right understood that life began at birth.
This is just new crap by the anti-woman, anti-American hatemongers who want to run other peoples lives.

POTTY MOUTH you have no idea what you are even talking about. Anti women ???- have you ever been in an abortion clinic - they are dirty and the treatment the women get is not the best. Yanking out a baby is like pulling a tooth to these doctors. Its called MONEY MONEY MONEY. That is why the GOP wants them in the hospitals to have the abortions if they are hell bent on killing babies. The Dems BS about GOP's hating women is just plain BS. The Dems like to see the women make fools of themselves and Obama even encouraged it. If my daughter was Susan Fluke I would have been horrified to have her display her nasty azz self to the world.

Maybe they figure (incorrectly, of course) is if more women are denied access to both contraception and abortion, more women will be FORCED to accept pregnancy, whether they WANT it or not.

FORCED - get real - you can not be that stupid. No one is taking away birth control pills, or the day after pills and how do you figure the women will be FORCED to accept pregnancy??? Now - do I want to pay for their BIRTH CONTROL PILLS - NO I DO NOT. If they want to play then they can PAY FOR THEIR OWN PILLS. These women are using the abortion clinics to be their birth control. If a woman is raped there is the morning after pill and any teenage kid can get it from the drug store.

You are nothing but a Gad Dam liar. How many abortion clinics have you been in? I have had an abortion at a clinic and it was clean and professionally run, I received the best of care including a followup and it was not overly costly. You don't know what you are talking about and are happy to spread lies. the GOP and grunts like you simply want to make access as hard as possible so quit your fricking lying. The GOP and their religious phallic worshipping followers DO hate women, they prove it all the time with their stupid comments on rape and their lack of knowledge on a womans anatomy. Why would they care since she is simply for breeding?

If Susan Fluke was your daughter she probably would have jumped from the Golden Gate bridge having a cretin like you for a parent.

It's not "BS" at all, no matter how many times you stupidly insist it is. As far as I'M concerned, the Republican conservative male politicians DO hate women, at least women who aren't the doormats and submissives the Republicans WANT us to be.

There's nothing wrong with Sandra Fluke, by the way. I'm wondering why you brought her name up in the first place, since she really has nothing to do with this discussion.

I suggest you try keeping up on what's going on in the states, like OHIO, for example. Gov. Kasich signed a bill just this week (Monday, I think it was) that would require women in Ohio to undergo an ultrasound before they could get certain forms of contraception, even though these women may have NO problems getting their regular BC before.

If women are denied access to contraception or abortion because ANTI-CHOICE politicians pass draconian legislation in several states, those women will eventually be FORCED to accept pregnancy, whether they WANT it or not. Which I strongly believe was the conservative Republicans' agenda behind it.

You can stupidly insist it's a "joke" all you want. I'm not buying the "there's no war on women" line of BULL the Republicans are trying to sell.

That's what Mitt Romney probably thought. You know, the guy who LOST the 2012 election, BIG TIME. But hey, you're entitled to your delusions if they make you happy.

Personally, I think what makes mostly-male, anti-choice conservative extremists so angry is that women CAN decide not to become mothers, but can -- and DO -- choose to be career women instead. I have a strong suspicion these guys see career women as a threat to THEIR jobs, especially women can also become career politicians...like Senators, Congresswomen, and even Governors.

So, in an all-out REGRESSIVE campaign to "send the women back home," or something equally stupid, the Republican politicians in states like Ohio, Texas, Wisconsin, and North Carolina have launched a new battle in the War on Women.

Since Republicans have shown themselves to be against women's rights, the best move for women is to kick Republicans out of their comfortable offices by voting DEMOCRAT in all of their state elections, for all their government offices, especially those of Governor, Senator, and Congressperson. I'm certainly going to VOTE DEMOCRAT in MY state, because it's time these Republican anti-choice bozos were kicked out of office, and out of women's medical decisions.

Gee Ocean, Gov. Kasich sounds like a nice sensitive misogynistic guy:

New budget further highlights Kasich’s lack of respect for women
by Joseph on July 1, 2013 · 9 Comments

Since the beginning of his term as Governor, Kasich has shown a complete lack of respect for women:

Kasich pays his male staffers 56% more than his female staffers.
Kasich defended his very low number of female cabinet appointments by saying his “wife makes all the minor decisions”.
The few women Kasich did appoint to Cabinet positions ended up at agencies with much smaller budgets and smaller staff sizes.
Kasich appointed attorney Mike Gonidakis, the unqualified president of Ohio Right to Life, to the Ohio Medical Board
And let’s not forget that rally for Mitt Romney where Kasich thanked the wives of the candidates because they were “at home doing the laundry” and “at home taking care of the kids.”

http://www.plunderbund.com/2013/07/01/new-bud...

The ruse that the anti-choice movement is about "life" has been harder to maintain in recent years, as lawmakers have starting attacking contraception access (which reduces the need for abortion, duh). Gov. John Kasich of Ohio took it a step further Sunday night and signed a bill that merges his party's anti-contraception and anti-abortion agendas into one. The budget bill (of course!) packs a one-two-three punch of making it harder for women to prevent pregnancies, harder for women to terminate pregnancies, and harder for low-income women to keep their babies.

As is typical with these sorts of things, the abortion restrictions are getting the bulk of the headlines. HB59 has a bunch of severe anti-abortion riders on it, including a mandatory ultrasound humiliation ritual and restrictions to make it harder for abortion providers to work with local hospitals (directly contradicting the right's claim that its newfound love for clinic restrictions is about making abortion safer).

What's not getting as many headlines is this: The defunding of contraception services in the state may manage to do even more damage to women's health than the abortion restrictions. As reported by NPR, Ohio Republicans barely bothered to claim that defunding family planning services is about abortion. Family planning centers will now basically not be able to get any funding at all for contraception services, even if they don't provide abortion. Merely making abortion referrals, which is something that all medically respectable clinics do, is enough to make your clinic last priority for funding. And it's not just contraception providers that are hurt by acknowledging that abortion exists. If a rape crisis center counsels a woman who asks about abortion, they will also be defunded.

Since the war on contraception remains as unpopular as it ever was, anti-choice activists are still doing the obligatory dance of pretending that contraception services will still be available. Michael Gonidakis, the head of Ohio Right to Life, implied to NPR that there were other providers of birth control within "walking proximity" of the contraception clinics his group is lobbying to close. I say implied because he avoided saying the words "contraception" or "birth control" out loud, instead trying to steer the conversation toward the "adoption reform" part of the bill. Indeed, HB59 is largely built around not just trying to increase the rate of unwanted child-bearing, but to make it harder for women to keep their babies. The budget for welfare services to help single mothers was cut, but crisis pregnancy centers that lay the adoption pressure on thick got more money.

The Women should NOT USE ABORTION AS A BIRTH CONTROL. Why should the tax payer pay for every woman who wants to screw around and not protect themselves? They can get Aids but they are only seeking their own pleasures for the moment.

Yes, I heard about it and I also heard on MSNBC Rachel Maddow say that the ultrasound has a probe that goes into the vaginal and that is a LIE. An ultra sound is a jelly they put on your stomach and it shows on a screen what in in the womb. MORE LIES by the DEMS who have no idea what they are talking about, and want more freebees.

There is more than one kind of ultrasound. In fact, there is a transvaginal ultrasound where a probe IS inserted into the vagina. And what she was talking about were the laws that would REQUIRE doctors perform that particular kind of ultrasound in order for a woman to be able to have an abortion.

Guess what, goofy, IT'S NOT UP TO YOU to decide whether women can have an abortion or not. It is for EACH woman to decide whether or not to continue a pregnancy. If she wants to stay pregnant and give birth, fine. If she DOESN'T want to stay pregnant or give birth, also fine. Either way, it is HER decision, not yours.

Furthermore, despite your LIES to the contrary, federal funds AREN'T being used for abortions. I believe the Hyde Amendment covers that issue, so I suggest you read it sometime.

NO woman should be forced to endure an invasive ultrasound procedure that she never wanted and wasn't recommended by her doctor just to get her regular birth control either. But that idiot Governor Kasich of Ohio decided women SHOULD be forced to endure it, and THEIR wishes don't matter. I hope that moron is voted OUT of office in 2014.
